Excerpt: Boston Acoustics' A series speakers are a well-known great value, and the 225C is the centerpiece of the setup. The design is low-key but classy and won't draw unnecessary attention to themselves. The sound is generally balanced, but doesn't have quite the same amount of bass as other centers in this review.
Excerpt: A quality center speaker is essential to any home theater. Poorly designed center speakers can make dialogue hard to heard, leaving users to adjust the volume up and down throughout a movie in order to understand what actors are saying. And a center speaker that isn't timbre matched with the front left/right speakers can make pans across the soundstage seem disjointed.
Pros: Excellent Build Quality, Non-fatiguing for long listening sessions, Good looking and compact
Cons: Pseudo phase plugs glued to the speaker cones, Treble is a little bright for some, Measured sensitivity is lower than rated
